The Colony Hotel West Palm Beach & Swifty's Restaurant

Stopped for breakfast at the iconic Colony Hotel in West Palm Beach. Swifty's is their on-site restaurant which offers beautifully decorated interiors and an outdoor, poolside setting to enjoy brunch.

For brunch, I wore a cutout top from Tularosa which is a few year's old and a draped, loose sage green skirt from Zara, also older. I found a similar one on Amazon and an almost identical one here. Also, I'm bringing back the head turban from 2012! This one is from Ulta. My bag is the only new item featured in these photos. I've linked similar items below.The Colony Hotel West Palm Beach

There is not one square inch of this hotel that is not covered in something chic. From the wallpaper to light fixtures, upholstery and the accent plants - they thought of it all.  There's a Dolce & Gabbana boutique in the hotel lobby, monkey and flamingo wallpaper throughout. And talk to me about the beautiful pink marble interiors in the bathroom? Unique and beautiful.  Also, my outfit was unintentionally retro which matched the theme. 

The styling on this outfit is all about the loose pieces that drape in different ways.  I also feel like a boxy, lace cut-out top, like the one I'm wearing here, is a summer staple. You can style it in so many ways, such as with high

Vacation Edit ft. Farm Rio & Maria La Rosa

Vacation Edit featuring the Farm Rio Off-White Flowerful Birds Lenzing Ecovero Euroflax Midi Dress. What a long name!?

The dress has minimal give and runs true to size. It features cutouts throughout at the entire waistline and zips up the back. This dress is versatile because it works for both day and night.  I paired the dress with some Stuart Weitzman pink sandals and a new bag by Maria La Rosa - the Game Clutch in the color Cielo.  

I am obsessed with how roomy this clutch is and how you can opt to use it with or without the chain strap. The inside has one tiny interior pocket which is credit card sized. It's very roomy and easily fit my phone and camera with all of the other essentials.

Holiday Outift Ideas for a Toddler


Holiday Outfit ideas for a Toddler girl:

  • Opt for more unexpected colors, other than red. Try deep purples or forrest greens.
  • Tartan plaid is a classic holiday pattern but can be updated by mixing in some navy and white stripes or adding a piece that's a solid color, like heather gray.
  • Mary Janes paired with knee high socks are always beautiful and exude classic, little girl style. Her shoes are from Amazon, linked below. The Gap has a nice pair as well.
  • A Peter Pan collar is a traditional and classic style that can be spruced up for the holidays by adding some fun Christmas pins (make sure they have a safety-back).  You can even try detachable collars in a plaid print.

Wet N Wild x Little Twin Stars Collab

I'm such a sucker for all things Sanrio.  Something about all of that brings me back to my childhood; it's very nostalgic for me.  Now that I have a daughter, I like finding things for her that are Sanrio themed.  We have a lot of Hello Kitty stuff in our home, and we (I), also enjoy Little Twin Stars.  Way back in October of 2021, I found that Wet 'N Wild had an entire makeup collection being sold at Ulta, that was Little Twin Stars themed.  I couldn't help myself and bought all of it.  I've got some of the products from the box, below with some swatches. 

If interested, the entire Little Twins Stars x Wet N' Wild Collection is available directly on the Wet N' Wild site and is now on sale.  Amazon also has some items. 
Edit: Ulta only has two items from the entire collection left in stock.  The two lip products are The Star Dust Lip Mousse in the shades Candy Cloud 9 and Lost In a Cloud.

The entire collection, as shown above, includes two makeup sponges, a makeup sponge holder and cup, four lip products, a makeup bag, two lip masks, two face palettes, an eye shadow palette. makeup setting spray, four eye liners and two makeup brushes. 

Fun cosmetics pouch.

Two glosses and two satin finish lipsticks.  The swatches on the right are shades Lost In A Cloud and On Cloud Nine 

Blush brush and shadow brush.

I recommend the blush, very pigmented but super powdery. Be gentle when you dip your brush. 

I will say that I did not enjoy the shadows from the palette.  They were not pigmented, and had almost no staying power. A shame because the colors are unique and you could get creative with them.  I get a lot of use out of the blush and highligther. I wore the glittery stars as a cheek highlight on Halloween. The most fun! The blending sponges were just OK, a little dense for my liking.  Overall, this was a fun makeup set, with cut packaging and some good products that will definitely liven your mood.

Urban Decay Naked Mini 3 Palette Review

I know what you're thinking, "'Not another Naked pallette?!'" I know! I knew it! But seriously speaking, I love the new Urban Decay Naked Mini 3 Eyeshadow Palette for a beautifully blended, every day look.

At first glance, you may not think there's anything special here. True, you could probably find most of these shades in other palettes or stashed away in the drawer where you keep your singles. But let me tell you why it's awesome and you need it:

1. Travel Mate

It's tiny, portable size makes it the best travel companion. Tuck it away anywhere for on-the-go makeup. It has a quality standalone mirror, and although the case is not metal, the plastic seems sturdy. 

2. Quality 

The shades are high quality, which for a 'mini palette' seems hard to come by lately. They're soft, blend easily and really have minimal fallout. Prime your lids and the pigment will stay put all day. I especially love that they blend easily when applied with your fingers (my favorite way of applying the shimmers).

3. Shade Range

You may think that a neutral palette is boring. It's not. See below for swatches and my go-to look

Right Time


Disclosure: I was not paid to write about this product; every now and then, Urban Decay shows me some love and mails me some products. This palette was received in PR.  xx
